“Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”Psalm 62:8 NIV.
It’s hard to live boldly when you keep sinking in the valley. You’ve struggled for so long to find your footing on the path God has called you to tread. Others reach their summits while you seem to slide back down into the shadows.
Oh, precious soul. God is building your faith endurance. Will you keep going when it’s hard, and hope seems lost? Will you dig your nails into the dirt and pull yourself up and believe the promises of God when they seem so far away? Will you keep trusting Him to make a way because you know HE is the only One who can do it?
Don’t be afraid to pray boldly. God wants to hear you praise Him as you reverently stand in awe of how mighty He is while believing He sees and cares for you. He wants to hear what’s on your mind and in your heart.
When you pray and meet with Him, it pleases Him.
So, be bold and run to His altar. Don’t wait! Don’t worry about what others might think. Don’t stare at the backs of their heads while they sprint to the mountaintop either, wondering why you can’t take that path.
Stop looking at people. This is between God and you.
Pour out your heart to Him, totally and freely. And don’t hold back the desire of your heart, thinking it’s too much to ask or too big to expect and hope for. Maybe THIS is why your faith endurance needs to be strengthened – you’re about to step onto THAT path. Perhaps God lovingly tucked that special desire into your heart when He knitted you in your mother’s womb, and He’s been waiting on you to delight in Him, to trust Him, and put HIM above everyone and everything, including that desire.
Now, trust Him. Lay it at His feet and courageously WAIT to see what He will do and how He will lead you forward.
In the meantime, thank Him in advance as you prepare for the blessing He’s already prepared for you since before you were born.
When you pray bold prayers, don’t be surprised when God answers in astounding ways. He’s faithful that way.
